WH in-town pool report #1

?Good morning,

It's a cold and sunny day at the White House, where the snow has melted but some ice remains.

Your pooler has been tested for COVID-19.

President Trump has nothing on his public schedule today that's open to press. At 2:15 PM, President Trump and the First Lady will sign legislation authorizing a women's suffrage monument in D.C. but the event is closed press.

President Trump has been tweeting this morning.

I'll keep you posted on any updates.
